Personal data and data protection
How Lund University will adapt to the forthcoming Data Protection Ordinance
On 25 May 2018, a new Data Protection Ordinance (DSF) will come into force and will then replace the Swedish Personal Data Act (PUL). The DSF (Dataskyddsförordningen) is the Swedish name for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The aim with GDPR is to strengthen the right to privacy and to adapt legislation on personal data management to the digital society. Another aim is to harmonise EU legislation in the field and thus facilitate the flow of information within the Union.
The new rules clarify and place higher demands on the University regarding personal data management. In order to facilitate adaption to the new legislation, the management at Lund University has initiated a project entitled "Personal data management within Lund University". You can read more about this in the Project plan: Personal data management within Lund University (PDF, 50 kB, new window) (in Swedish).
